QUESTION 1: Determine the slope of the beam at A , measured counterclockwise from the positive x -axis.
Determine the maximum deflection of the beam.
(Express your answer in terms of some or all of the variables L, E, I and M_0 in both cases .)
- Relevant Equations
- Table of deformation --> attachment to be used to determine the maximum deformation + slope via the method of superposition
I would like to get some help for this problem if possible.
The problem here is that, after looking at the table I don't really understand how I'd be able to incorporate the moment at the pin A into the deformation. as if you look at the first page 2nd block, there's that simply supported beam, but with a moment that is applied at the side of the roller.
So there are actually two questions here:
(1) for the pin: How do I determine the deformation due to the moment at A
(2) for the roller: the moment is in the opposite direction than shown in the table, does that imply that I could just take the opposite of the equation that is stated next to it for the slope and the deflection?
Thanks in advance!
a note: I do know that the elastic curve will be a 'parabolic' being concave down and deforming above the non-deformed state of the beam, but that is about it on this one.
